    Default PlayStation Classic announced $99 Ridge Racer! RIIIIDGE RACER!

    https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018...-loaded-games/

    Not that I will buy this thing but IMO it's more compelling than the Nintendo ones. Wild Arms man. FF7. Tekken. R4 and more.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    It's a console that I never had, and at the time there was really nothing exclusive to it that I really wanted to justify buying it. Well, maybe The Lost World (Special Edition).

    Let's see if one can add games to this.
    A very wise Mighty Pirate™ once said: "Never pay more than 20 bucks for a computer game."

    Interesting. Gotta have some real hard to find games, otherwise I really don't see the point with a PS3 and OG PS1 and PS2. The games mentioned I already own. Except Jumping Flash. First time I ever hear of that game. And Ridge Racer... cuz it's the best gaming experience you'll ever have and every single person in the world should own it.

    All kidding aside, this does appeal to me personally in the same way as the NES and SNES classics. Something of a mini experience, no pun intended, of a console I didn't get to have bitd. Kind of like a second chance to live that moment.

    I do wonder if it's DS3 or DS4 compatible. It should be. The corded controller is cute and all. But if the tiny PSTV is, then so should this be.

    Cool, I'm always down for these retro console if the emulation is spot on.
    It's disappointing that Sony have revealed only 5 of the 20 games that will be available though.

    Lack of dual stricks is also worrying, PSOne Classic incoming next year with them and new games?

    Why can't they make those consoles so that you can purchase more games via download?

    The $130 CAD price tag kills the impulse buy for me. I will keep playing PS1 games on Vita.

    Interesting! I imagine Sony have had a much harder time than Nintendo/Sega/Atari/etc pulling together a list of titles due to the lack of first party games. I wonder how much of the retail price will be covering licensing fees, compared to the hardware, and how that's going to affect Sony's margins.

    But they don't offer these games on psn for PS4. Even if they did, it seems to me like a no brainer.

    I need a Vita. That would be money better spent.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    I just noticed at the bottom of their page that the AC adapter is sold separately?!

    So that means:

    Runs on batts?
    Runs on standard +5 USB and comes with a USB cable but no actual adapter?

    If it is just using a micro usb connection for power then hopefully that means they have designed it to be plugged and ran directly off your TV usb similar to how I've used my SNES classic when I've pulled it out to use from time to time?

    Not sure I will grab one of these. I missed on that era of the first PS and thus no attachment to it. I do own a few PS games but got them because they were cheap used and I knew I could play them on the PS3. Metal Gear is one of those games. But yeah...not sure.

    I actually played FF7 in higher quality D3D mode on my PC back then LOL. I still own that PC version of the game and that was really my first experience with a Final Fantasy game.

    I love these things for the modding aspect, I would be greatly amused if I could upgrade this with an internal 1tb ssd and add a nice collection of my own personal favorites to it.
